Sidel says its installation of the biggest Combi line ever for filling carbonates has led to Argentinian customer Refres Now viewing it as its strategic bottling partner.

Refres Now's La Matanza facility in Greater Buenos Aires province is one of the largest soft drinks production sites in the world, bottling 3.5m+ liters per day across 10 product lines. 

Sidel said the new Combi filler (pictured), part of a complete line, had cut energy consumption by 17% - it was installed to address a rise in demand for family pack sizes in Argentina, in this case 2.5 liter bottles.
